Forgotten Finish

I forgot to share this little finish. Someone suggested adding a white border and it was a great idea.

I just quilted a simple stipple. I don’t do that very often. I’m out of practice.

And a simple solid green binding, leftover from something else.

Speaking of leftovers, this backing piece is sideways, but it wasn’t big enough to go the other way. Feels good to use up and make do.

I’ll hang onto this until I find a little girl that needs a quilt for her doll.

Have a great day!

Finish It Up Friday ~ Rainbow Quilt

This was such a quick quilt, but it doesn’t look like a quick quilt.

I love a good rainbow quilt! I kept the quilting simple. The backing is from a duvet cover from Pottery Barn that I picked up, still new in the package, at a garage sale.

I have been scouting out new places to take photos of finished quilts. I went to our local university. This sculpture was done by Marshall Fredericks. I love it!

This photo shows the colors most accurately.

Have a great day!

Throwback Thursday

I decided it was time to take down the Valentine quilts ( yes, really) and put up a few red, white, and blue quilts.

Not a great photo, but it’s the first time hanging this in my front hall.

This one isn’t patriotic, but I’m not ready to put it away yet. It seems good advice for our times.

As soon as I folded this red string quilt, Willy decided to upchuck on it. Did I ever mention that I make quilts to be used? This one has been washed a gazillion times already.

Have a great day!

Cheddar Love

This was such a fun little project to squeeze in this past week! I was inspired by Barb’s quilt, Butterscotch and Blue. Hers is much bigger than mine!

I quilted this on my Juki with the walking foot. I don’t love using that, but if worked out okay this time.

Here’s an after washing photo.

I love making minis! Have a great day!

Progress!

This quilt has gone so quickly, that I forgot to take many photos along the way.

I wanted to clarify a few things. This is a single “block.” It is just a 5 inch square sewn to a 5 by 10 inch rectangle.

I pressed all seams away from the white.

Ta daaa! It’s already on the frame!

I love a quick quilt! Have a great day!

Something New!

I pulled this layer cake out to use for one of the kid quilts I want to make this month. I bought this on a Cyber Monday sale back when Bluprint was still Craftsy. I liked it better back then. I didn’t renew my subscription this year.

I like the range of color in this.

And here is how I am making one of the quickest quilts ever! I cut my layer cake in half and I cut one 5 by 5 square of white for every rectangle.

Here is my layout, minus the white squares which will go in the spaces. I didn’t use the entire layer cake, but you could if you wanted a bigger quilt.

Here’s a tip: keep all the same white fabric together in a bin so you don’t have to sort it out later. This is all Lily and Loom Brilliant White. Scraps, yardage, it all lives here.

Here are my rows sewn together and turned sideways. This will be done in no time. It will finish at 63 by 70.

Have a great day!

Slow Stitching Sunday

I’ve got a bit of binding going on today.

And then I’ll move on to some more quilting on this.

I had hoped to have that third side done by today. Oh well, no deadline on this one.

Still loving those giant fans. The stencil is available from Fun with Barb .

Have a great day!
